Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This Project is a fifth semester project in the course Danish from Roskilde University. The project aims to describe, analyze and discuss how the choice of new types of fighter aircrafts unfolds in the public debate. The acquisition of new fighter aircrafts is based on a desire to optimize the Danish defence, so that Denmark can contribute to international military operations and preserve its sovereignty in Danish airspace. The acquisition of new fighter aircrafts is furthermore due to the fact that the current F-16 fighter aircrafts are becoming outdated. The project uses tools from text analysis in the form of argumentation and framing theory to identify opinions and the reasons for those opinions to different types of fighter aircrafts. The project begins with a presentation of problems and circumstances of the debate followed by an argument analysis of the prominent arguments. This continues to the study of how frames are used to create a certain opinion towards the two aircrafts F-35 and F-18. Furthermore the results of the analysis will be used to discuss the interaction between framing and argumentation, which provides an understanding of why there has been a change of opinion to the preferred fighter aircraft. Furthermore the discussion contributes to understanding how the recipient is unconsciously influenced by the consignor. Finally a reflection of the general complexity in languages will be given. All this shows how the public debate never acts objectively, but activates certain frames through used words and expressions.
